>> reporter: george lyon was a plaintiff in the heller case in which they lifted d.c.'s ban on handguns. >> i want to have teachers who are willing to stand as the last line of defense. >> reporter: he wants the police department to provide firearms training to teachers and staff members who want it. the firearms would be kept in the locked biometric safe that only opens for those with the fingerprint match. that he says will keep the guns from getting in the wrong hands. >> they would open up. it could be done in seconds. >> reporter: why allow teachers and staff here and that they will point to the columbine shootings and say that there is need for more defense in schools. >> the officer was outside at the time the attack happened. there were two shooters. he did engage in one, but in the meantime they were free to do what they wanted to. >> reporter: they said that
6:01pm
they have learned to first engage the school resource officers. >> once he is out of the picture, they have essentially a gun-free zone, you know, or a fertile killing field. >> reporter: he says that the staff members who sign up, they would also go through the psychological screening. at sandy hook, teachers did their best to save children and some lost their own lives doing so. >> and they would post themselves to a shooter and they had no tool to stop the attack. >> he believes that the terrorists have watched our reaction to sandy hook and that they might be planning something like this. >> and for a second if they could pull off a similar type of incident that they would not do it. that scares me. >> reporter: and now he has just submitted the plan for safer d.c. schools this week to the city. the mayor spokesman blasted the idea and said the last thing we need is more guns in schools.
6:02pm
he says that the urban setting is entirely different than some rural state. saying here in d.c. you could respond to the situation within minutes. but he says that they are happy to look at the proposal. leslie? >> all right, thank you. president obama is keeping his foot on the gas when it comes to gun control. addressing the democratic caucus in leesburg, acknowledging that there are regional differences when it comes to feelings on firearms. but the president says that the priority will need to be on keeping children safe. >> but what we know is the majority of the responsible gun owners that are recognized as we could not have a situation in which 20 more of our children or 1,000 more of our children are shot and killed in the senseless fashion. >> reporter: meanwhile the president of the nra predicts that all gun control measures will fail in congress. today in denver, david keen called the universal background checks a political sweet spot. >> reporter: the washington redskins name, they are now taking a beating down at the
6:03pm
smithsonian. it's the focus of the symposium at the american indian. they have been debated and dragged through the courts for years. and the washington post sports columnist, he's one of the panelist and he has been a champion in finding a gift that might change for the burgundy and gold. >> i think when people say redskins are around washington, you know, we hear the bedspread here and that the sound, it's the same. when you go to the same place out of south dakota, the person will tell you, you know, that name, it is equivalent to the n word. >> and it's the washington redskins for how many years? a long time. and now absolutely not changing their name, no way. >> reporter: would you be okay if they changed their name? >> i would, yeah, i'd be okay with that. i would get the new number 10 and the jersey here with washington and a new name. >> reporter: and do you hear that dan snyder? a new lawsuit to get the redskins name changed, expected
6:04pm
to be heard next month at the u.s. patent and trademark office. in the meantime all this talk of a possible redskins name change, it is lighting up the wusa facebook page. one viewer writes can it not be it? and why is it hateful? because it is not. another facebooker says to leave it alone. not everything is racially motivated. another response, the native americans might see it a little differently. if you could have them call on the redskins that we could have a teen be called the n word. sounds fair. it is just a great derogatory term as they are to the african americans. want to join in on the conversations? you could do it any time. just log on to wusa9's facebook page. the search is on for the body of the 2-year-old little girl. apparently carded away in the trash. her mother is now charged with murder. annapolis police arrested the 25-year-old chelsea booth early this morning. >> i'm scott broom in annapolis junction, maryland. where at this hour annapolis
6:05pm

>> i made sure that the can was full for the snow blower and fired up the generator to make sure it worked. >> tonight people across new england are getting ready for a historic foreast. in addition to a couple feet of snow, you could deal with hurricane-forced winds and flooding. all adding up to a very dangerous system. topper shutt, are we going to see any residual from this at all? >> maybe a little bit. our mountains will. good news for the skiers. maybe a couple snow showers, but that's about it. this is not our storm. now with that said as the onset of the precipitation with the winter weather advisories north and west of town. overnight for some sleet and freezing rain. we'll go to graphics. these are where the warnings are up to the north and along the corridor. no real surprise there as we talked about it being a little bit here in terms of the winter precipitation. and so they are about where we thought they would be.
